Having designed the charger control unit and power module, the Automotive Research Association of India said that the charger will considerably reduce the charging time of electric vehicles

At a recent launch event of a 100 kW DC fast charger designed and developed by the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI), a memorandum of understanding (MOU) was exchanged between ARAI and ARAI-Advance Mobility Transformation and Innovation Foundation (ARAI-AMTIF) while ARAI-AMTIF signed MoUs with ten startups and micro, small and medium enterprises. It must be noted that the ministry of heavy industries has supported the initiative of an industry accelerator through its capital goods scheme.

Pandey remarked, “We support e-mobility and green energy initiatives. The 20 per cent of ethanol blending has also been achieved much before time. Our country’s youth should become job-givers instead of being job-seekers and the MOUs signed today are a step in the same direction.”

It is learnt that the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) will soon launch advanced driver assistant systems verification and validation test facility, cylinder test facility and Heit facility in Pune. Union Heavy Industries Minister, Shri Mahendra Nath Pandey said that the facilities will be ready in the next two years.

The minister pointed out that the USP of ARIA’s fast charger is that it charges a vehicle for a range of 300 km in half an hour. He added, “Our ministry along with the petroleum and road transport ministry has identified 22,000 petrol pumps where the process is on to have charging stations. In this direction, this fast charger will be useful.”

Automotive electronics department GM at ARIA, Abhijit Mule said, “The charger control unit and power module were designed by ARAI and the charger will considerably reduce the charging time of electric vehicles.”

The joint secretary of the heavy industries ministry, Hanif Qureshi, ARAI director Reji Mathai, ARAI president Rajendra Petkar, and ARAI senior deputy director Nitin Dhande were present during the launch.

Established in 1966, the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) is the leading automotive R&D organization in the country set up by the Automotive Industry with the Government of India. ARAI is an autonomous body affiliated with the Ministry of Heavy Industries, Government of India. The Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India, has recognized ARAI as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (SIRO).
